After carefully studying your case and fully considering any additional evidence or arguments submitted, we have decided not to waive the overpayment.  The reasons for this decision are:

[Describe reason]

 

Option 1 You should forward a check in the amount of [$].  The check should be made payable to the U.S. Department of Labor, OWCP, and it should show your case file number as given above.  Payment is due within 30 days from the date of this letter.  If you are unable to refund the entire overpayment immediately, please contact this office within 30 days so that appropriate arrangements for recovery (such as installment payments) can be made. All payments to OWCP should be sent to:

 

US DEPARTMENT OF LABOR

OWCP/EEOICPA

POST OFFICE BOX 70943

CHARLOTTE, N.C. 28272-0943

 

OR

 

Option 2 You should send a check in the amount of [$] each month until the overpayment is repaid.  Make the check payable to the U.S. Department of Labor, OWCP, and include your EEOICPA file number on the check.  All payments to OWCP should be sent to:

 

US DEPARTMENT OF LABOR

OWCP/EEOICPA

POST OFFICE BOX 70943

CHARLOTTE, N.C. 28272-0943

 

Interest began to accrue as of the date of the final overpayment decision, at the rate of the U.S. Treasury note in affect on that date.  If you wish to repay the entire amount of the overpayment at this time, and thus avoid payment of additional interest, please submit your full payment immediately.

 

The first installment payment is due within 30 days from the date of this letter.  At the repayment rate set above, the overpayment should be collected in full on or about [Insert date].

 

If we do not receive payment, or some indication that you intend to make payment, within 30 days, your overpayment will be considered a delinquent debt.  Should this occur, administrative charges for the cost of sending additional demands for payment may be added to the debt.

 

DEEOIC will refer delinquent debts to the Department of the Treasury to recover an overpayment from the debtor’s salary or for collection by administrative offset from any federal payments that may be due you.  We will assess an additional administrative cost to help defray the expense of this referral.  Information about the status and delinquency of your debt will also be subject to credit reporting. 

 

You have the following rights in connection with this decision:

 

 

 

 

If you believe that any information of record concerning your debt is not accurate, timely, relevant, or complete, you must provide information or documentation to support your belief within 30 days from the date of this letter.

 

Sincerely,
